Sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I use to fix her hair in my beauty shop many yrs. ago. I was pregnant with my yonger daughter at the age of 22. She came in on Mon. After work. One wk. She. came in and she was really upset , she had been to the doctor that afternoon, she and your dad was expecting their first grandchild, instead she found out she was pregnant with David. She was in shock. I laughed & cried with her. I have seen her several times over the yrs. She always knew me & we laughed & reminisced. Such a lovely lady.
